 got a substantial start on one of the  "Daytona's

  I had to reverse un  engineer someones  hack work that looked to be  a start of a  drag car? door panels and  floor pan  cut panels  glued to  body  had to  do reconstruction of my own floor pan that seems  to  fit well heavy as sin with all the   putty and  cement but i'd rather have "stock" than some  hack up  parts jobber I think I've done well fixing to the  best of my ability will try to get some  pics up......

 

as I go with them if ya'll havn't already  figured it  out I work on many things at once helps me  not  hit  slumps and want to  keep going!

A rarer one! The AMT Plymouth Horizon TC-3. There's like ten of the Omni out there for every one of these. Hard to find but still cheap once found.

I'd take any of those. :)  Did anyone make the Horizon or Omni 4 door hatchbacks?  Even an Omni O24 would be cool.

There was the 2 door factory Charger turbo version made, but no one has ever made a plastic 4 door Omni turbo kit, nor either of in the correct Shelby GLHS versions ....but that will soon be corrected!  ;)

In the new year most likely I'll have done and ready in kit form :) ....I had several turbo Dodges, including a GLH Omni, quick even if rough cars, the Shelby GLHS proper cars are getting quite collectible now!

The Omni and Horizon have both been recently done as 1/25 or 1/24 diecast.  Easily available in the $10 range on that auction place.

I have one of those, way bigger than 1/24-5 scale, closer to 1/20, and very basic details, is in factory turbo spec, no does the Shelby version  in resin or metal  ...thus building one myself!  ;)
